We generate the subscription license based on the start date and end date of the contract. This is integrated to the license hash.
So all subscription license on DC will expire on its respective end_date. We do not allow any grace period.
Also the IPS license obtained from (CTRL_LIC) PID is a perpetual, the TA-LIC subscription for the IPS provides only signature updates not license.
I have 1 more question regarding a license entitlement, especially a contract.
If the subscription license based on its contract, please kindly advise if specific contract type is required to issue the license.
Normal IPS license required IPS contract like SUSA, so please advise if there are some conditions for SF IPS, URL Filtering, and also a Malware and application control license.
